Solresor has now finalized the transition to a new reservation system and new web platform, that will give the company new possibilities in offering its products to the market. At the same time there has been an impressive transition in web sales, in 6 months going from 40% in web sales to 75% sales on the web, due to our new technology. This will give the company great potential for growth in the future and the possibilities to bring new and exciting products to the Swedish market.

Solresor recently introduced its portfolio of special tours for next winter with fantastic results, with more than 300% increase in pre-sales from last year. It has also started sales for our new destination in the Canary Islands for next winter, La Palma, which was the most popular destination for Solresor clients last winter, and the winter destination with the biggest increase in all of Sweden last winter.
